Wondering if Shadow might indulge me with a little information on how it handles transport security. Based on previous threads, which are relatively limited, it seems Shadow uses UDP to stream from the Shadow instance back to the client unless you choose TCP. My experience with the TCP options was not as good as a typical VDI or RDP session, the basic desktop would artifact, lag, and ghost. The typical discussion point to choosing UDP centers around reducing latency and higher gaming performance. Unless wrapped in a TLS or IPSEC tunnel, UDP isn’t typically encrypted. Now it’s valid to consider that what is streaming down from the Shadow instance to the client, it’s normally screen data and sound. Risk here is relatively small for gaming assuming proper password masking for applications on the instance. But how does the client handle data being sent to the instance? Primarily keystroke and peripheral (camera and sound/voice)? Unencrypted keyboard and peripheral (camera, sound/
I noticed recently that my Shadow’s (California, US) performance became slower. When I first got the server, the download and upload speeds were symmetrical (around 1.0 Gbps), but now when I test the upload speed of the server with Netflix's Fast.com, or speedtest.net it starts off around 1 Gbps upload, and immediately jumps down to around 100 - 200 Mbps of upload.

Hello!! So I have Shadow running on my iPad Pro when i am away from my laptop and I was wondering how to activate a virtual trackpad. Windows 10 has that but it’s not showing up in the settings and I can’t find any alternatives :-( I have spare bluetooh mouse, but I can’t find the bluetooth connection settings in the Shadow launcher
So I went to turn on shadow and it starts normally, until it gets to step three or just stops the start up entirely. Kinda getting a little mad. I have shut it down for more than 30 minutes and it still won’t start up. I haven’t updated to Windows build 2004 (Atleast I don’t think I did) Please, help.
When I try to start Shadow on my PC, the desktop app is stuck on the Shadow is starting screen with the progress bar. When I click on start, it shows me this We're almost there! screen with a screenshot of a boot menu. I've tried shutting down Shadow, turning it to 5 MB and Prefer Reliability in the settings and starting it again, but it's still stuck on this issue. This started yesterday. It might be because I tried to update windows on my Shadow yesterday but the update didn't finish before shadow's 30 min window shut it off.

Every time I boot up Shadow my mouse is really slow. I can adjust it in the mouse settings - and its fine afterwards for the session - but when I close Shadow and log back on at a later time my mouse is really slow again. A small nuisance really, but I wonder why the adjusted mouse speed isn’t remembered by Shadow? Am I missing an easy fix or is this a known issue?
Hey, I just got a new Xbox Controller which I connected by Bluetooth on my Macbook, and also connected to my Android phone (not at the same time). The controller is immediately recognises by Shadow, on both devices, as I get a nice popup showing it is connected. On the Macbook it also shows up nicely in the controller menu in the Quick Menu. However, when I start a game on Shadow, in my case Fortnite, the game does not see the controller. It does not show the controller interface in the game menu, just the normal mouse and keyboard interface, while the Shadow Quick Menu still shows the controller is connected. Same result on Macbook and Android phone. Do I need to do additional steps to enable the controller in a game? The Fortnite menu usually auto-detects the type of controller. In Youtube videos you can see people switch between keyboard and controller on-the-fly. There is no controller selection in the Fortnite menu, as far as I know. I can use the controller just fine when I
I have had to double my sensitivity for games like CS:GO and Fortnite and it doesn’t feel normal. This has been going on for more than a week and I addressed my problems to the support team and they just told me to get an ethernet cable. I know it’s not a latency problem because I went on GeForce Now and my sensitivity is fine, so it’s definitely a shadow problem. Please fix it, I really like shadow and I don’t want to have to switch
Hey everyone I can't believe I'm the only one having this problem, so I thought I'd ask here. I'm havint this relatively well documented problem of installing a game from the Windows Store, uninstalling it, but the space not being reclaimed from the C: drive. The space is taken up in the C:/Program Files/WindowsApps folder, and on my machine at the moment that's running at about 200GB. There is a workaround which involves taking ownership of the folder so you can give yourself delete permissions and manually delete the files, but this doesn't work on the Shadow PC, because they seem to restrict your ability to make these changes. I reached out to Shadow support, and they suggested resetting my Shadow PC, but that isn't really going to work. This is a consistent issue with the Windows Store, so if we reset then we're just going to have the problem as soon as I install and uninstall a game again. I know this for certain because I had the problem before... my Shadow PC was reset for
Hi all, About 95% of the games I play on Shadow are quite dark and the gamma slider in their settings menus don’t do anything. I’ve installed ReShade thanks to advice from other gamers, but, even if it DOES higher the gamma setting, it’s very difficult for a n00b like myself to set it up properly. Are any of you running into this same problem, or even better, know how to fix this problem?
